    What's irritating you VI 23rd Jun 17 at 7:20 AM
    Haven't even got out of bed yet and I'm irritated.
    -The badly behaved cat peed in the laundry basket so all my summer clothes have had to go back in the wash and I'll have to wear jeans today.
    -I've pulled a muscle in my leg and have to drag it behind me, quasimodo style
    -OH ate all the bread so I can't have toast for breakfast

    One poster in the 'Arms' in two hours, between 9.30 and 11.30pm. [That be you sleazy]...back in the day you'd get a 100 posters during that period of time. Where did it all go wrong?

    My 2nd display on my computer has decided to have a day switched off ....
    It still exists in windows and opens programs on it ... it just won't turn itself on so that I can see the said programs!

    At least I know a couple of shortcut keys so that the programs that open on there I can move to my other screen so that I can see them.

    I diagnose it as driver issue, alas as I don't have admin rights I can't do anything to fix it.

    Tommix was here to notice there was only one poster about but didn't try to interact with them.

    How many posters from 'back in the day' are still active/unbanned?

    All of the posters from that time are that amount of time older and life does move on.
    I am older than I was and find that there is not enough to interest me to make me want to hang around much past 9pm even if I combine being on here with watching TV.

    A prime example of the situation is the pub thread at the top, there used to be 3 stalwarts keeping it alive but then one got banned, one took unwell after retirement and the other was left with no-one to talk to late at night. Whose fault was all that? Life happens.

    Ha ha! I know what's irritating my wife.

    She just sent me a Whatsup message from work saying she'd forgotten her bra.

    To be fair it probably could be done remotely, its a software issue rather than a hardware issue.

    The monitor works fine, its just windows not playing with it.

    What has helped though is forcing it onto vga by swapping with the other monitor and then replugging the cables the correct way.
    Strange as a simple unplug and replug had no effect. Oh well the strange world of windows we live in.
